The Fermentarium began its adventure in fermentation in 2014 at the Blackhorse Workshop, Walthamstow, London. At first the emphasis was on baking sourdough bread and pizza-making in a cob oven in the yard as well as sourdough bread-making classes.

In 2014 Simon and David wanted to share their experience and knowledge of fermenting and began to run lactic fermentation classes and then were joined by Anna in March 2016 and added further courses including Soft fermented drinks and dairy ferments.

In November 2016 the Blackhorse Workshop redeveloped the area occupied by the kitchen so now courses are run down the road at Gnome House, although a permanent home is being sought.

The teacher was extremely competent and knew all the secrets of sourdough breadmaking. Highly recommended!

My partner and I had a brilliant time at the workshop! Hat was a great teacher and gave a good intro to the different stages for sourdough baking. Really great for beginners and for those with some baking experience. Nicely paced, with tips along the way. It was great to take a freshly baked loaf home, plus two doughs at different stages and beginning a starter culture in the workshop for future sourdough baking adventures! Would recommend :)

Really enjoyed the fermentation class and learnt so much. I've been inspired to continue fermenting at home! So much cheaper than buying in.
